Dustin Bentall & The Smokes are currently opening for Lindi Ortega as part of the JD Originals sponsored tour. Dustin’s got a very unique voice not unlike John McCauley of Deer Tick. It’s not a crooner’s voice, but it’s damn good. It cuts right through the band and drives home the lyrics. Performing songs from their solid last record “Six Shooter” The Smokes, featuring Kendel Carson and at one point Legendary Heart and ever-youthful Barney Bentall, kept the crowd rockin’ and then did double duty as Lindi’s backing band.
Seriously, you could’ve told me Dustin and Barney were brothers and I’d believe it!
